Thermophysical data have been obtained by the method of resistive microsecond pulse heating of wire-shaped samples, which are part of a fast RCL discharge circuit. Measurements were performed up to temperatures above the normal boiling point of the specimen. The experimental setup allows heating rates of greater than 10**9 K s** minus **1. Thermophysical data such as heat of fusion, specific heat, and the mutual dependences between electric resistivity, enthalpy, volume expansion, and temperature are reported.
